From the wiki.............32acp vs 32 revolver

32 acp
It was designed for early blowback semi-automatic pistols which lacked a breech locking mechanism; the relatively low power of the .32 ACP round made it a practical blowback round.
It is still used today in blowback semi-automatic pistols, as well in modern locked-breech, single column magazine, deep-concealment, semi-automatic pistols.
Ballistic Data
• Muzzle velocity: 4.8 g (74 gr) full metal jacket: 290 m/s (950 ft/s)
• Penetration 7.3" (Bare Gelatin)
• Expansion 0.49" (Bare Gelatin)


.32 H&R Magnum
The .32 H&R Magnum is a rimmed cartridge designed for use in revolvers. It was developed in 1984 as a joint venture between Harrington & Richardson and Federal Cartridge. The .32 H&R Magnum was produced by lengthening the .32 S&W Long case by .155", to 1.075".
The .32 H&R magnum offers substatially more performance than other .32 caliber handgun cartridges such as the .32 ACP and can be considered an effective small game hunting cartridge. It's high velocity offers a flat trajectory, but the light weight of the bullets results in low recoil.
One of the .32 H&R magnums favorable attributes is that it offers .38 Special energy levels and allows a small-frame revolver to hold 6 cartridges, whereas a similarly sized revolver in .38 special would only hold 5 rounds.


Tom,

You forgot to give us some comparison information for the 32 H&R Mag.

Here are Federal's Data for the 3 rounds.


32 H&R Mag
Bullet weight = 85 Gr
MV = 1120fps
ME = 237Flb

32 acp
Bullet Weight = 65Gr
MV = 925
ME = 123

38 Spl
Bullet Weight = 110Gr
MV = 980Fps
ME= 235Flb

32 H&R Mag produces some good stats, it should be useful as a defensive round for those not able to handle the greater recoil in a short barreled gun.

Unless you're in Africa.

Sure, it was probably ACP. But the article doesn't definitively say that. How many times have we complained about reporters getting the facts wrong? Let's not make assumptions that put ourselves in the same situation.

And if you go back even further in time there was also 32 rimfire both in short and long.

And since this is Brazil, and not Burnsville, isn't at least half-reasonable to assume that someone might have some weird old revolver that shoots one of the half-dozen .32 pistol loads, like .32 S&W Long, .32 S&W or .32 Short Colt? A quick review of Winchester's ballistics shows all are more anemic than the .32 Auto, some by as much as 25%.

The other Brazil-related element in the equation, regardless of the specific .32 caliber cartridge, is perhaps the environment. It's not all like this, but much of Brazil is pretty tropical. Could this have affected the ammunition? The weapon itself? Some combination that resulted in poor performance?

Mobocracy got it.

I vote for an old, break-action, .32 revolver with old ammo.

Also 7.62 Nagant revolver (mine shoots 32 H&R Mag medium loads as well) 32 S&W, 32 S&W Long, and 32 Long and Short Colt not to mention the 7.65 MAS!

There are lots of "Nickel Nightmares" out there in cheap break actions in various 32s.

32 acp is probably the way to bet, although the 32 S&W is lower powered and very common in cheap revolvers.

The one I pictured is a .32 S&W.

I see it as more likely than the ACP because the ACP is full metal jacket while the revolver round is lead.....and in those old ones the lead was very soft--thus contributing to the failure to penetrate bone.

Did the boyfriend reload? Do some 32 S&W revolvers have 7 shots?

The shot in the hand was probably a defensive wound, she had a hand out or in front of her face.

Ok... I can see that happening. I did do a little research on gunbroker and most of the 32 S&W's were five shot revolvers though.

Well, we are speculating, with little information to go on other than the number of wounds and the caliber, and even that may be wrong!

It might even be .32 rimfire. I had a old marlin that shot that for a wile as a kid. but ammo was never available. now the boxes of ammo are worth more then the gun
